a blend of American wheat and single-malt whiskeys married with peated Islay Scotch barrels;
Broken Barrel Isle of Peat explores the concept of reclaiming flavor from oak while also reclaiming oak from the Scots. American whiskey is heavily dominated by Bourbon - a whiskey governed by a rule that a new oak barrel can only be used once. Scotch whisky however follows no such rule, and Americans export millions of ex-bourbon barrels to Scotland where they become Scotch barrels.
Isle of Peat introduces a curated combination of American wheat whiskey and American single-malt whiskey, blended together and matured with the charred oak staves from these very Scotch barrels.
Specifically, Islay Scotch barrels - best known for their unrelenting smoky character and intensity. The reclaimed oak staves are broken down from their barrel form, carefully selected, and submerged into the whiskey we've blended for a minimum of 30 days. Stored in a warm dry environment, these Islay staves impart their smoky finish into every last drop of this incredible whiskey. The finish is a long-lasting smoke show that will leave you wanting more and more.
This story all began in a garage. In 2012, young and creative founder Seth Benhaim decided the world was in desperate need of a spirit that offered a natural and simple process that anyone could understand. After experiencing the magic of infused spirits while on vacation, he realized the market lacked such product. So naturally, he decided to be the one to create it...and he did. One year and a few hundred samples of vodka infused with only natural, real ingredients later, Seth launched Infuse Spirits. Just three months later, Seth (who was then 25 years old) became the youngest brand owner to ever win Best-in-Show and Double-Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Since then, Infuse has continued to work tirelessly and passionately to ensure every bottle of Infuse Spirits, whether its vodka, whiskey, or bitters, is balanced, smooth, and bursting with character and flavor.
